VR3DEdu aims to enhance the purposeful use of eXtended Reality (XR) digital technologies in the education for teaching, learning, assessment and engagement. This includes the development of Volumetric 3D educational teaching content, advanced digital pedagogy and expertise in the use of digital tools for teachers, including accessible and assistive technologies and the creation and innovative use of 3D digital education content in current practices. Equally, it includes developing the XR digital skills and competencies for teachers in EU and beyond. Particular attention will be given to the free accessibility of toolkits and use by teachers in underrepresented regions. The created digital content will contribute to the objectives of the “Opening up Education” initiative, designed to boost innovation and digital skills in schools and universities to facilitate Open Learning Environments (opportunities to innovate for teachers and learners) and Open Educational Resources (OER: opportunities to use open knowledge for better quality and access).
How many teachers are aware about Open Educational Resources and how do the principles apply in XR Educational Systems? We will hear more about it at the second online workshop of Vol3DEdu Erasmus next week, 2nd of May 2023 5-7pm. Our teachers registered to the project will tune in and tell us more about their experiences and will be trained on OER in XR.
